Alternatives for Providing School Library Service to Rural Newfoundland.
Hallein, Joe
Educators in Newfoundland are recognizing the value of media programs and are requesting instructional materials in order to meet the various needs of their students. In response, the Government of Newfoundland made a $5.00 per pupil grant to school districts for the purchase of instructional materials during the 1970-71 school year and has raised it to $8.00 for 1975-76. However, most school districts in the province are unable to make maximum use of this grant since they lack either the trained personnel to purchase and organize the materials or the proper physical facilities to house and distribute the materials. The problem is especially acute in those districts and schools located away from the major urban centers. This report discusses various alternatives for providing adequate instructional materials to schools in rural Newfoundland. These are: individual school libraries, a school-housed public library, bookmobiles, use of volunteer help, and regional centralized libraries. (NQ)
